Hull FC fullback Jamie Shaul helped his team to a 38-10 victory over Catalan Dragons ..... but missed the birth of his first child to play.
Little Teddy was born to mum Chloe whilst Jamie was in Perpignan for Hull's promising start to the First Utility Super League season.
Congratulations to @jamieshaul & his partner Chloe whose first child has been born today! And what a day to be born, to join the B&W army!
The result sees Hull maintaining their 100% win record after their win over Salford Red Devils last Friday. It means the Black and Whites have started the season with back-to-back wins for the first time in six years, with the result taking them top of the table once again.
And hopefully it was worth it for Jamie - who did score one of Hull's seven tries!

Rotherham United have unveiled Neil Warnock as the club's new manager.
The veteran manager replaces Neil Redfearn in charge of the South Yorkshire side, on a deal running until the end of the season.
It is the fifth team in Yorkshire Warnock has managed, after previously taking charge of Scarborough, Huddersfield Town, Sheffield United and most recently Leeds United.
An advert paid for by fans calling for Leeds United owner, Massimo Cellino, to sell the club has been removed.
The sign at Elland Road was taken down after the agency responsible was threatened with legal action.
City Ads Yorkshire, who agreed to erect the advert paid for by a group of around 70 United fans, removed it on Friday morning after solicitors acting for Leeds and Cellino told the firm it "clearly amounts to harassment of Mr Cellino."
Lawyers Ward Hadaway issued a legal letter after the billboard appeared outside the entrance to Elland Road's East Stand around lunchtime on Thursday.
This poster has obviously been placed outside the entrance to Mr Cellino's place of work so as to cause the maximum distress to our client.
This exacerbates the quantum of harassment that is intended to be caused and is malicious.
The letter said that despite requests from the club, City Ads Yorkshire had initially refused to remove the advert on the "grounds of freedom of speech".
